|Dear Nora & My Little Brother - It's Okay To Smile - Dear Nora & My Little Brother|
The sets on this album were recorded live at the Humdinger Haus on February 26, 2000, an all-ages show that alwso saw sets from Dressy Bessy and the Aisler's set. Dear Nora, as most by now know, is one of the West Coast's mostsweet, infectious pop outfits. This is an early, warm set from them and is a charming testament to the genius of Katy Davidson. My Little Brother are long time MASA cohorts, and their set is an accurate capturing of them in all their raw, pop brilliance and unrehearsed stum...

Clamdust is James. James used to play in Language Arts, Bellingham's staple pop band of the last five years. This album is 16 tracks of four-tracked material that James wrote and recorded over the last 4-5 years. Mostly acoustic songs, they are filled out with all the lovely toys and harmonies that make modern indie pop just so sweet and delicious.

|Alec Troniq - EP1 [phoke25] - Alec Troniq|
Up to now, dancefloor tracks have not really been represented on Phonocake. Those days are over now, though, because Alec Troniq is helping us out there with the latest release: three tracks with a total length of roughly 26 minutes and from a genre that lets quite a few electronica lovers furrow their brows. But no reason to worry: Alec Troniq holds up Phonocake's honor and the love for music, letting us hear uncompromising, but somehow tasty dancefloor, which, by the way, works wonderfully as ...

|Transient - Whole Symesta EP [od064] - Transient|
After his remarkable appearance on the Cucina Vagabonda compilation, Transient gently steps again into the lovable world of sweeping synths and melodious rhythms 'n arpeggios. Tough at parts, yet mellow and expansed, always fading in beauty; an exemplar taste of melodic idm, synth-pop flavoured and so much poetic. As if in a tale where little fairies cure ill mini-robots. One of the best releases of 2004 already.

|A Sandcastle Still - The Four Elements Of Analog - A Sandcastle Still|
The concept behind this album was to have four engineering friends with analog equipment and tendencies to record four songs each. Each engineer was given one of the four physical elements and asked to try and do their magic in such a way as to embody that element. The songs they recorded were selected to be the most fitting, lyrically and musically, for the element they were given. The album was recorded in July and August, 2002...

|Drehton - Lhoupcakes [phoke29] - Drehton|
Welcome to the world of the musician 'Drehton'. Sweet little ghosts are zipping around breaking percussions and beautiful guitar lines, which turn into something else every now and then, since the guitar is mainly used as input device for a midi controller. 'Lhoupcakes' is a very emotional, an instinctive release, built of fragments of a live recording in Dresden's club gallery 'l'houp'. There and then, fat beats will give this listening experience a push forward...

|disrupt - a fistful of dub [phoke24] - disrupt|
The wind is blowing from a very different direction with Phonocake's latest release: Disrupt transfers classic reggae music to contemporary media, thus producing reggae with the help of digital tools - laptop dub plates, so to speak. You could call the sounds developing from that mixture spherically electronic. All four tracks are very dubby, three of them are constructed on traditional riddims, as is usual - and even essential - in reggae music...
